You can do that using visual design programs like NetObjects Fusion or HotMetal Pro
(www.netobjects.com, www.sq.com), or by learning HTML, the simple language these pages are written in, and writing your pages in a text editor like Windows Notepad.
My favourite is Hotmetal Pro
6.0, which does all of that and has an Asset Library, a collection of DIY bits you need to build a website.
Similarly, SoftQuad HotMetal Pro
was just a development tool, according to Ait and therefore not much of a threat to Site.
Hotmetal Pro 5 is Softquad's latest all singing and all dancing HTML editor, site manager and major suite.
Now, it is not fair to say that this is a package for beginners - far from it - but as a fairly accomplished HTML programmer the 'learning curve' to even do simple pages within Hotmetal Pro 5 is very high.
Image handling was a prominent issue also in Web page design software, such as FrontPage '98 and the brand new edition of its most capable competitor, HotMetal Pro
4 from SoftQuad, which has a few aces up its sleeve.
I decided to review two of the more popular - FrontPage 98 (Microsoft) and HotMetal Pro
At press time, the major products included Saros @mezzanine, Documentum RiteSite, Domino, Netscape Communicator, Web Integrity, Livelink, HoTMetaL PRO
, FrontPage, and DocuShare.
The latest version of the company's web authoring tool, HotMetal PRO
5.0, began shipping last month.
Gart Huygen, information system administrator with Rowbotham & Company, San Francisco, designed his firm's home page using a software package called HoTMetal Pro
that cost $149.
Internet Office Web Server offers a full breadth of functionality such as S-HTTP and SSL security features, top-of-the-line HTML authoring tools such as HotMetal Pro
from Softquad, and fast, reliable data search engines from Architext.
